As a blind female, I’ve received my fair share of questions regarding menstruation. In this video, I seek to address some of the more basic queries I’ve gotten in a matter-of-fact manner that doesn’t go into too much detail on the aspects of this topic nobody wants to hear about. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. If you’d like to see a more in depth video where I delve a bit deeper into this topic, I’ll definitely consider that as well.
I Experience Colors Primarily ThroughSenses Other Than Sight
How do I experience colors? 5 percent through remembered images, 95 percent through my other senses. Taste, scent and texture all play a role in how my mind interprets colors today.
If you’re #blind, comment below and share how you experience colors in your everyday life! I’d love to hear from others on this topic.
Parenting with a disability is beautiful in many unique ways, but it doesn’t mean the wish to see certain aspects doesn’t exist. Here are 5 things I wish I could see as a blind parent.
If you’re a blind parent, comment below with some of the things *you* wish you could see!
It’s been a while since I’ve sent you beautiful people a note without a video attached, but I wanted to regarding this.
I want to beg your indulgence if updates appear to be lacking some of the formatting or featured images they once used to harbor. After returning, I discovered that the WordPress.com post editor is nearly inaccessible to my screen reader.
WordPress gutted the classic editor, rendering it quite difficult to use without sighted assistance. The old WordPress editor was clean and easy for my screen reader to follow. No blocks, no code editors, and a layout that was simple to interact with. I’ve enabled what settings I can to combat this, but the end result is a lot of clutter and frustration.
I’m on a hunt for tips and tricks and tools I may not currently be aware of. I could use the mobile editor for now, but there are many options that are simply not available there. Even finding the publish button is a challenge now.
I want to ensure each post is as ideal as it can be, and I don’t feel I can deliver that right now. But I am trying.
You are all wonderful, and I appreciate the support of every one of you. Thanks for understanding this new hurdle, and I’ll keep you updated on my progress as I go.
